Below are some examples of what today's “churches” consider as to being a Christian.
What is a Christian? The Perception
The answer to the question “What is a Christian?” will vary greatly depending on whom you ask. To some, it means you were born in a “Christian” nation or you come from a “Christian” family. To others, it means you believe in Jesus or the religion that is based on Jesus’ teachings. Yet others use the word “Christian” to speak of a deep personal relationship between Jesus Christ and an individual.
What is a Christian? The Biblical Definition
Since the Bible is the authority for the Christian faith, let’s see what it says about the word “Christian.” The word is only used 3 times in the New Testament and each instance is referring to the first “Christians” of the early church.
“…So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch” (Acts 11:26).
“Then Agrippa said to Paul, ‘Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?’” (Acts 26:28).
“However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name” (1 Peter 4:16).
They were called “Christians” because their behavior, activity, and speech were like Christ Jesus. The word Christian means, “follower of Christ” or “belonging to the party of Christ.” So, what made them part of this group called “Christians.”
The Bible says that good works do not make us acceptable to God. In other words, a person can live to a high moral standard, give money to feed the poor, go to church, and serve their neighbors, and yet not be a Christ follower or “Christian.”
These verses clearly share that salvation (being born again) is a gift of God. Nothing we do can earn us salvation. A true Christian is a person who has accepted God’s gift of salvation and put their faith in Jesus Christ. This includes accepting Jesus’ death on the cross as payment for our sins and His resurrection as proof of His power over death.
What is a Christian? The Believer’s Response
Once you answer the question, “What is a Christian,” you have the personal responsibility to ask yourself, “What does this mean to me? Have I rejected or accepted God’s gift?”
If you’ve accepted God’s gift of salvation, how has your life changed? Do you have the marks of a follower of Jesus Christ, a Christian? If so, your life will be characterized by love for others and obedience to God’s Word. 1 John 2:4-6 says, “Whoever says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in that person. But if anyone obeys his word, love for God is truly made complete in them. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did.”
If you’ve never accepted God’s free gift, we encourage you to continue your investigation. What is holding you back? What questions do you have?
If you are ready to trust Jesus and become a Christian, believe in Christ and commit the rest of your life to Him. Understand that sin separates you from God (Romans 6:23) and Jesus died as your substitute (Romans 5:8). You can have faith in Jesus to forgive you and give you eternal life with Him, rather than eternal death.
Christianity is the largest religion in the world, with over 2 billion professing Christians. If you asked most of them what it takes to be a Christian, they would have difficulty giving a clear answer. Is a Christian simply someone who believes in Jesus Christ? Is it simply an emotional religious experience or a one-time, stand-alone decision?
What does the Bible require for a person to be a real Christian? Many professing Christians claim they have had a religious experience and that they “accepted Jesus.” Yet many of those same people live no differently after the experience than they did before it.
So, what is a Christian?
Anyone who is serious about his or her beliefs has an obligation to ask the question, “What is a Christian?” What is it that distinguishes a real Christian from the everyday person? Who or what determines the answer? And where should we go to find the answer?
Only the Bible has the answers to those questions. Acts 11:26 tells us, “The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.” The word “Christian” means “a follower of Christ.” The word “disciple” in this same verse means “student” or “pupil.” This is helpful information. A Christian is not merely someone who professes to believe in Jesus; rather he or she is a follower of and a student of Jesus Christ. Being a Christian is an ongoing lifelong process of following the example of Jesus Christ.
A person who claims to be a Christian should demonstrate his or her belief by living the way Christ lived—doing what Christ did—and avoiding what Christ avoided. Christianity is a way of life. The disciples of Christ will follow Him and work at patterning their lives after His life.
So what is a Christian? A couple of billion people on the planet all claim to be Christians, but their beliefs, doctrines and practices vary widely. What does being a Christian mean? Let’s take a quick look at what the Bible says a Christian is.
While the first-century Christians did follow the teachings, practices and example of Jesus Christ at that time, since then the term has virtually lost its meaning—as it’s usually not accompanied by the same way of life and understanding. Today many claim to be Christians yet don’t really follow Jesus’ teachings.
A Christian responds to God’s calling
God’s Word is quite clear that one cannot just choose to be a Christian! There is a calling or invitation involved. God is not calling all of mankind at this time (Matthew 22:14;John 6:44 nor the particularly rich, famous or powerful of the world (1 Corinthians 1:26-27 1 Corinthians 1:26-27).
God most often calls ordinary people who can more readily acknowledge their human weaknesses and learn God’s way. These are people who have made mistakes, know it, yet appreciate the forgiveness that God extends to them (Matthew 21:23, 31-32). Children who have a parent who is a genuine Christian are all invited by God to also become Christians (Acts 2:38-39; 1 Corinthians 7:14).
To be a true Christian, a person must change— really change! Acts 2:37-39 shows that Christians must “repent” and walk a different way of life. After repentance, a Christian must also be baptized (immersed in water) by a servant of Jesus Christ (Acts 2:38; 8:14-17).
In biblical terms, this process of change, of surrendering one’s life and turning it over to God is called conversion. Obviously, a human being cannot change everything at once, but one can have a repentant attitude and turn in the right direction, making basic changes as he or she embarks on a new path of overcoming sin, bearing “fruits worthy of repentance” (Matthew 3:8).
Following water baptism, God offers His Holy Spirit to the repentant believer (Acts 2:38). A person is not “of Christ” unless the Spirit of God is in him or her (Romans 8:9). This Spirit is imparted by the laying on of hands by an authorized representative of Jesus Christ (Acts 8:17-18). Through repentance, baptism and the receiving of God’s Holy Spirit, a Christian is then able to understand the spiritual truth of God and His Word (1 Corinthians 2:11).
The example of Jesus Christ
The apostle Paul also helps us understand what a Christian is by simply stating that we should imitate Paul as he imitated Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1). Later in the first century, the apostle Peter likewise reminded the Church that they were to follow Christ’s example (1 Peter 2:21).
Christ’s example included worshipping God on the Sabbath day (from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday) and on the Bible’s annual Holy Days (Luke 4:16; John 7; compare Leviticus 23). His example also involved compassion and love for others (John 3:16; Matthew 9:36) along with keeping the commandments of God (Matthew 5:17-19).
Christians will understand the teachings and way of life in the Scriptures and will strive to live by them (Luke 4:4).
According to the Bible, a Christian is someone who responds to God’s calling, repents of his sins, is baptized, receives God’s Holy Spirit and lives as Jesus lived. While God expects us to be loving examples to our families and others (Matthew 5:13-16), Christians will put their calling before everything and everyone else! (Luke 14:26-33).
From Billy Graham website.
Some years ago, I was in a cab when I asked the driver about his faith. He replied that he was a Christian, and I asked him how he became one. I’ll never forget his reply: “Oh, I was born a Christian.” But those who belong to Christ know that it’s impossible to be born a Christian because we start out with a sin-infected nature, lost and separated from God.
People often use the term “Christian” as simply a category for describing someone’s cultural, religious, or family heritage. Other people believe that a person is a Christian because he or she attends church or was raised in a godly home. For still others, the term “Christian” is no more than a box to check off on an application or survey form.
So what is a Christian? Jesus said that His true followers are those who have been “born again” by the Spirit of God. When a Jewish religious leader named Nicodemus came to talk with Jesus one night, he declared that God was with Jesus because of all the miraculous signs Jesus performed. Jesus had this penetrating response: “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. … Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit” (John 3:3, 6, NIV).
The phrase “born again” in Scripture literally means “to be born from above”–a spiritual rebirth. A Christian is a man, woman, or child who has experienced a spiritual new birth through the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. That new birth is a gift of God, through Jesus Christ, given by the grace He freely offers to all.
Some believe you can be born into a faith. For example, a child born to Muslim parents is considered a Muslim by many people. A son or daughter born to a Jewish mother is typically considered to be Jewish, and someone born into a Christian family is often assumed to be a Christian. No one, however, is ever automatically a Christian by birth. To be a Christian, you must make a conscious choice to turn from your sins–that’s repentance–and by faith believe that Jesus is the Son of God, who loved us, paid the price of our sins on Calvary’s cross, shed His blood and died, was buried, and was raised to life on the third day.
The Bible says, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him” (1 John 4:9). The Bible also says that “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). The moment we do so, the Holy Spirit makes us alive in Christ, imparting the gift of eternal life, and making us entirely new creatures in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).
How do we tell if it’s real in our lives? The Bible says, “We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, ‘I know him,’ but does not do what he commands, … the truth is not in him” (1 John 2:3–4).
A Christian, then, is a person who is born again by the Spirit of God as he or she wholeheartedly trusts in Jesus Christ and seeks to follow Him in obedience. There is no other way to the Father, no other way to be a Christian, than through personal faith in the Son of God. “I am the way and the truth and the life,” Jesus said. “No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Hundreds of young people became Christians at each of our Rock the River evangelistic events in three major Canadian cities in August. As they heard the Gospel, the Holy Spirit convicted them of sin, and they repented. They turned in faith to Jesus Christ, were born again, and received new, resurrection life.
Please remember to pray for me as I preach the Gospel in Osaka, Japan, this month and in Eastern Europe later in the fall. Satan wants to take as many people to Hell with him as he can, but God wants all to repent and turn from their sin so they can enjoy eternity in Heaven with Him. The Bible says that God “is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
Your financial support and your faithful intercessory prayers make you a shareholder in the great work of evangelism and discipleship. This is all we do, because becoming a follower of Jesus Christ through the new birth is the most important step a person can make in this life, and for the life hereafter.
It must also be noted that Billy Graham and most others teach that being a Christian has nothing to do with genetics (being of the race of Christ). That anyone can become a Christian just by “believing”, and “accepting Jesus into your heart”. The Bible warns us of these false preachers and their satanic doctrines.
Today's preacher's have you true Israelites believing you are Gentiles! And that the Jews are Israel!
It is time to WAKE UP and learn and realize that you can become a renewed, knowledgeable, proud, and practicing Israelite Christian, instead of a dead (asleep), ignorant, unlearned and fooled Israelite.
To keep this study short, you must first understand who true Israel is, the history and heritage of true Israel, and the commandments and characteristics of true Israel.
If you believe the Jews are Israel, you have been deceived like the rest of the world, as Christ said would happen.
The Jews are descendants of Cain and of Esau.
True Israel are the descendants of Jacob. The white nations of the world are of Jacob.
See 'Cain', 'Edom', 'Adam and Eve', and 'The Twelve Tribes' in the Who's Who menu, where you will find these facts demonstrated from archaeology, science, history, and scripture.
See also 'Chosen' in Word Studies menu to understand just who is the chosen.
The name of our God is Yahweh, and our Kinsman Redeemer Yahshua the Christ. See 'The Name' in Word Studies menu.
Now we can proceed in identifying exactly who and what a Christian is.
From G5547 anointed; a Christian, that is, follower of Christ: - Christian.
1) Christian, a follower of Christ
Webster's 1828 Dictionary:
A real disciple of Christ; one who believes in the truth of the Christian religion, and studies to follow the example, and obey the precepts, of Christ; a believer in Christ who is characterized by real piety.
Christ is the anointed Messiah.
Christ is a descendant of an anointed people.
The anointed people are descendants of Jacob. Jacob is the obedient son of Isaac.
Isaac was dedicated on the altar to Yahweh by Abraham. Isaac and his seed are Yahweh's.
Esau's seed was rejected because he despised his birthright and race mixed with the descendants of Cain who is the satanic product of Eve and the serpent (Devil, Adversary, nachash). Cain is NOT listed in any genealogies of Adam.
Jacob's seed was chosen because he kept his seed pure and followed The Way. (See 'The Way' in Word Studies menu).
The children of Jacob are Israelites. Israelites are Yahweh's Anointed People.
Our ancestors were given the law at Sinai. Our ancestors broke the covenant and were later split into two houses (Israel and Judah) and eventually punished and scattered all over the Greco-Roman world, into Europe and eventually America. After Babylonian captivity only a remnant of the house of Judah returned to Jerusalem under Ezra and Nehemiah to rebuild and to bring in the Messiah.
Christ is a descendant of Judah, one of Jacob's 12 sons.
By the time of Christ, most all of Israel had been dwelling outside of Judaea. They would be referred to as the 'uncircumcision', or dispersed ten tribes, or “lost” tribes of Israel. They lost and forgot their heritage, history, and laws and became pagan (ignorant of Yahweh, like today's “churches” as well).
The Israelite Judaeans back in Jerusalem still retained their history, heritage and laws, to a certain degree, because the Edomite Jews had infiltrated the priesthood and corrupted it into the 'traditions of men'. The Pharisees were teaching their Judaism as if it were Christianity, just like today's “churches” teaching Judeo-Christianity as if it were Christianity.
Christ rebuked the Edomite Jew Pharisees for it. He will also rebuke today's denominations as well upon His return.
Note: Only the children of Jacob are ever referred to as His sheep.
So now that we have established that the Anointed people are the descendants of Jacob, and that Christ is one of those descendants, let's see if there are any other peoples included in claiming themselves as Christians, followers of Christ.
Jesus sent the twelve forth, not to the other nations (races), or the Samaritans, which were then Canaanites.
Is Jesus sure He wants the gospel preached only to the house of Israel?
The word 'lost' is apollumi and means put away in punishment (divorced). Only Israel was divorced. This happened in the time of Jeroboam and Rehoboam. Later the Assyrians and Babylonians took Israel away and most of them never returned to Jerusalem. Hence, 'lost'. The gospel is for the lost, ignorant, unlearned, scattered children of Israel. The only people that can be bought back. The other peoples of the world were never bought or chosen. The bible is exclusive to the seed of Jacob. Israel was given the law, broke the law, was divorced and cast out from Yahweh, redeemed by Christ, and Israel is who the gospel is to, and is all about returning to Yahweh by allegiance (faith).
Preservation comes by the 'practice' of righteousness. Zacchaeus, as stated, was of the seed of Abraham, and his actions showed allegiance (faith).
The people of Judaea, and even the apostles, were persuaded that the Kingdom of Yahweh would materialize immediately with the manifestation of the Messiah.
'...that he would know what they did while engaged in business.'
From the servants own mouth he was judged: the servant admitted knowing what his master would expect, but still neglected any attempt to meet that expectation. Therefore the servant was judged for his negligence.
Those that have the knowledge and understanding and don't use it to build the kingdom are associated with the wicked servant.
Personal Salvation is not in scripture.
Christ taught kingdom identity and edification, obedience, and brotherly love.
This life is our test. See 'Tested and Tried' in Word Studies menu.
The bible is the book of the generations (race) of Adam. It is our history book. It is our guide.
The ancient patriarchs taught The Way. The priesthood taught The Way. Christ taught The Way, and demonstrated it perfectly for us to model after. We must follow and live The Way.
So let's compare the examples of what the “churches” teach what a Christian is and what the scriptures and example of Christ teach.
We see that the “churches” teach:
“Be Baptized” (in water, by some man)
“Accept Him” (as if you get to accept Him)
“Just Believe” (so simple, it's all you have to do)
Some teach to imitate Christ's behavior, actions and speech, which is true. But since they do not know the history and identity of true Israel, they don't teach those behaviors, actions and words. Who in the “churches” does any of the things that a true Christian does? None, because the “churches” teach that the law was “done away with” and “just believe and accept Him”, because we are all under grace and just waiting for “the rapture”, and that Jesus is a Jew.
First, Baptism is a pagan ritual. John was sent to cleanse the priesthood and prepare the lamb. That's it. True baptism (immersion) is in true knowledge and understanding. Water and a man that has no power and is not a mediator cannot do anything for you. Knowledge and understanding can.
Second, we don't accept Him. We are the ones that are accepted when we act like His children.
Thirdly, believing in Christ means following Him. You can't do that in just your mind. You must do what He did. Obedience, allegiance, works and deeds. See 'Works and Deeds' in Word Studies menu.
Not only by the fruits of our enemies do we know them, but Christians are known by our fruits as well.
Now let's see what scripture teaches.
A CHRISTIAN is 'a follower of Christ'.
As Christ stated, He is the shepherd, the descendants of Jacob are His sheep.
He came for His sheep only.
Only sheep are allowed into the fold.
A Christian is a literal descendant of His Anointed People Israel. None of the above, or any other “church” doctrines teach this.
When you realize that as an Adamic, Caucasian, Anglo-Saxon Israelite you are a literal child of Yahweh's in the flesh, then you will realize that you are part of a family, an inheritance, and a duty.
The duty as a mortal child of light is to seek, study, practice, follow and live as a child of the MOST HIGH.
This is NOT done by “just believing” or 'going to church'.
If you are a Christian, then you:
Take God's Word SERIOUSLY.
Study to show thyself approved.
A true Christian will seek, study and prove the words of scripture and not just take a preacher's word for it.
A true Christian immerses themselves in the scriptures, reading the books, doing word studies from dictionaries and concordances, learning about our history and our ancestors, learning how to correctly observe the law, statutes and commandments, shabbaths and feast days. Studying with one another and with those that have true understanding. The internet is a great place to find audio sermons, videos and slideshows, as well as articles and literature. We must study and discern what we are learning, see 'Discern' in Word Studies menu. There are many false preachers out there, most are unlearned and ignorantly repeating those lies. It matters Who and What we believe in.
Love your race.
Because if you just follow this second commandment, you follow them all.
Observe the Shabbaths.
There are more than just the weekly shabbaths. And they are not always on Sunday. See 'Calendar' menu.
Continue in the Abrahamic Covenant of circumcision.
If you are an Israelite, physical circumcision is part of the sign of being under that covenant. It does not matter that John Hyrcanus started circumcising Edomite Jews around 100 BC and that the other races do it too. This isn't a covenant with them.
Know and obey the words of the Commandments.
Christians know the law. The law should be read once a year.
The sins of the fathers are visited on the following progeny. It takes up to four generations to purge out pagan ways and habits.
His name is YAHWEH. Not Lord, not Jehovah, not God. We are to call Him by His name.
The Hebrew records 'murder'. The word kill means murder. Righteous killing is part of the law. Murder is not.
Adultery also includes race mixing. Destroying the holy seedline and purity of the race of awdawm. This part of the teaching of adultery is not taught in the “churches”, because the enemy has distorted our scriptures to suit their diversity and universalist agenda. Race mixing = holy seed destroyed.
The original Hebrew reads: 13...You shall not answer against another person (neighbor, friend) as a witness of falsehood.
In the original Hebrew, verses 13-16 are all one verse.
It also connotates to the action it takes to obtain that which belongs to another person.
Many “churches” teach that the law was “done away with”. This is false. The only thing “done away with” were the Levitical Priesthood and it's rituals. When Christ died, He became our High Priest and mediator. Our sacrifices to Him are now personal and spiritual, meaning obedience and allegiance.
Follow the food laws.
True Christians with knowledge and understanding know that the food laws were not “done away with”. Christ did not die so you could eat pork!
Keep the Feasts.
Yes, this is the Old Testament. This continues in the New Testament because the whole Bible is about the children of Israel. Christ and the apostles and the Israelites attended the feasts. Paul and the apostles continue to teach to keep the feasts to Israelites, even after Christ rose. Throughout history, the beginning of America, and these last days, the remnant keeps the feasts.
We are to keep the Passover, the feast of Unleavened Bread, the Day of Propitiation (24 hour fast), and the Feast of Tabernacles (dwelling in booths).
The “churches” celebrate Passover, but on the wrong day and to a Jewish Jesus.
A true Christian observes the Shabbath- with lamb for dinner.
Observes the 7 days of eating unleavened bread-made from scratch, and purging all leaven products from the home.
Observes the 'day of affliction', which is the Day of Propitiation (Atonement), by fasting from food, water, and fleshly desire for 24 hours. That includes no TV, radio, work, etc.
Observes the feast of Tabernacles (booths), by setting up a tent and basically camping out for a week in fellowship with obedient Christian Israelite kinsmen.
The phrase 'old leaven' refers to the Pharisees. Their 'traditions' and beliefs. The hypocrisy of their doctrine. Who were the Pharisees? See 'Pharisees' in Who's Who menu.
We must also remember the Judahite feast days which are memorials of events that happened to our Israelite brethren of the house of Judah during the time of Esther (Purim) and the 'feast of dedication' (Hanukkah) which happened during the time of the Maccabees. This was the miracle of Yahweh when He kept the lamp burning for eight days when they only had enough oil for one day until they made more. This was when the Maccabees reclaimed the temple from Antiochus. The Jews claim this day as their Hanukkah, as they claim all our heritage. The Jews are NOT Israel.
Have the 10 Commandments posted on the doorposts of your home and gateposts of your property.
The side posts are called mezuzah. The door posts. We are commanded to write/post the 10 commandments on the mezuzah, the sides of the gates and doors to our homes.
This is NOT a Jewish thing, even though the Jews have made it into a lucrative business.
A true Christian knows and posts the laws of his God.
Wear or carry a tsiytsith.
Symbolic of the law. Following, reaching or touching the law (fringe) will keep you in THE WAY.
I keep a hand made tassel with 12 white strings and 1 blue string in my pocket.
As Yahshua Christ said, this do in remembrance of Me.
We take communion every shabbath. Do as often as you wish.
Fellowship with your own kindred and race.
We are not to associate with the other races or with those of our race that are race mixers and habitual sinners. We are to be a separate people. See 'Separate and Segregated' in Word Studies Menu.
Public life- of course this day and age we are surrounded by the other races and multi-culturalism.
Private life- this we can control.
Put images and idols away from you.
Do you partake in, wear, or own anything that would offend Christ? These would include anything that does not represent you, your race, or your God. Many of our decorations and furnishings and styles are pagan. It's time to do some house cleaning. Follow your conscience. Some of us prefer not to buy foreign products, some designs and symbols are satanic, even a carved tiki god souvenir from Hawaii is anti-Christian. Tattoos, certain clothing, piercings, hairstyles, jewelry, etc. are Canaanitish. TV is satanic, yes all of it. Sports, music, news, religion. It is all corrupt. Once you start examining with your Spirit, you will find most everything is pagan these days. It is hard to purge it all.
Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Rebuke and cast out evil
A true Christian does not tolerate practicing sinners in the congregations, or society. Does not tolerate mixed race couples, homosexuals, and anything else anti-christ. A true Christian knows who the enemy is and makes no covenants with them.
A true Christian prays for repentance, guidance, blessings and protection. Prays for the destruction of our enemies. Prays for our nation, race and brethren. See 'Pray' in Word Studies menu.
Men are not to pray with their heads covered.
We sin daily. A true Christian knows that his past righteousness does not cover present sins.
A Christian knows that the law was not 'done away with'.
See 'Repent and Confess' in Word Studies menu.
Thank Him continually.
Thank God for everything. The punishments for disobedience and the blessings of obedience.
Thank Moses for intervening on behalf of our ancestors. Thank God for the angels (divine messengers) that watch over us. Thank Christ for His sacrifice. Thank Yahweh for His love and mercy and compassion.
Thank God for the good and the bad times. Sometimes the calamity, health issues, and bad times are a direct result of your sinning. Time to examine your mode of life.
See Sheldon Emry sermon on 'Thank God for thanking God'.
Do that which is right in the sight of Yahweh.
As for me and my house, we will serve Yahweh.
Living as a Christian is a daily practice. Learn what is expected of being of the family of Yahweh here on earth and live it.
Of course we cannot BE PERFECT as Christ was, but it is the effort He is looking for.
If you are sincerely, consciously, consistently, and constantly striving to BE a Christian, by DOING that which a Christian is required to do, then you may HAVE a chance to be placed into 'position of son' in the kingdom.
How can you be a Christian if you don't act, live, partake, practice, and do what is required of an Israelite Christian? How can you be a Christian if you believe in a Jewish Jesus or “church” doctrine? How can you be a Christian if you dress like a pagan, eat like a pagan, and tolerate paganism, in what used to be a Christian society?
Have you noticed that we do not live in a Christian society anymore?
What was once a white Christian nation under Yahweh is now a mulit-racial, multi-cultural, multi-god, pagan, satanic, vain, cesspool of everything anti-christian!
If you are wondering why Tithing is not on the list, see 'Tithing' in Word Studies menu. Tithing in OT days was the increase of the produce of the land given to the Levites. Tithing today is not a monetary requirement.
If you are wondering why Baptism is not on the list, see 'Baptism' in Traditions of Men' menu. It was not done before John, and it's purpose was to cleanse the priesthood and Christ. Acts records the transition from the OT Levitical laws and rituals to the law written on our hearts and immersing ourselves in knowledge and understanding.
If you are wondering why “Go to Church” is not on the list, it is because the “churches” are a big part of the problem. They are just repeating the false doctrines and lies of Judaism that claims Christianity. Ever since the 1800's, the many bible revisions, Jewish infiltration, and rise in “church” denominations has resulted in the perversions we now have today. See 'History of the Bible' in menu.
The “churches” today are the same thing as the 'synagogues' in Christ's day.
He never spoke any good about either one! Both are Synagogues of Satan. Judaism is the doctrine of Devils and has no place in Christianity.
The steeple of a “church” is a pagan sun pillar symbol.
The cross is pagan symbol of the sun god Tammuz. The fish symbol represents the fish god Dagon. Easter is the pagan worship of Astarte (Diana, Ishtar, Ashteroth). Christmas is the feast of Saturnalia and worship of pagan deities and full of orgies and human sacrifice.
Sunday is the day of the sun god. See 'Calendar' menu for the correct Shabbath days.
It is time we shed these old pagan habits and follow The Way of Yahweh. It is time to stand and show ourselves as true Israelite Christians in Allegiance with Yahshua Messiah our Kinsman Redeemer. HalleluYAH!
The Christian Life
Seek righteousness. This can only be done by following the law, following His example.
Dead to this world, or society.
The children of Israel are the 'children of disobedience'. Only Israel was given the law.
The apostate, lost Israelite man, the old man who walked corruptly.
Shed your “church” knowledge and renew your Spirit knowledge. These corrections and restorations of scripture are presented to show how opposite the teachings of the “churches” are compared to what scripture says. O brethren of Israel, I pray your eyes are opening.
The last part should read: 'but altogether and in all ways Anointed.'
Who are the 'elect'? The “believers”? No. Who was dedicated on the alter to Yahweh? The seed of Abraham. Isaac. The Anointed, called out, set apart, holy and sanctified children of Israel.
If you just follow the commandment of 'love your brethren', then you are walking in righteousness. Instead of trying to follow all the commandments, just obey the great commandment of loving your brethren.
Neighbor- the Greek word is 'plesion'. It means countrymen, brother, kin, someone near to you.
It does not mean neighbors of other races. If we were following Yahweh's law, we wouldn't be living among the other races. For He demands we be separate. Remember when America was founded by the white, Anglo-Saxon Nations of the tribes of Israel? Now look at us.
The “churches” don't even know the name of God, and the teaching that Jesus is a Jew is of the highest blasphemy. Christ calls the Edomite Pharisees children of the Devil and the lusts of their father they do. (John 8:44). He wasn't name calling, He was stating a fact.
The Greek reads: 24
The promises of inheritance were given only to Israel, the seed of Abraham.
The reason we must study the scriptures is because simple mistakes and sneaky deception can steer us away from the truth. Unless the KJV translators were not very schooled in Greek language, verse 24 is a deliberate deception. If you 'receive a reward', the reward was not something you already had beforehand. You did something to receive a reward, in this case, heaven (righteousness). This supports the 'doctrines of men' teaching of you being “Gentiles”. That if you “just believe” and “accept Him” then you are “saved”. But if you listen to what Paul has been warning us about, the original Greek tells a much different scenario.
The Greek word for the KJV translation of the word receive is describing something that you once had. There are other Greek words for receive, but the correct word has to do with something that was disjoined and through righteousness can be rejoined.
to receive (specifically in full); also to take aside: - receive, take.
When a child is disobedient, what happens? The father takes aside the child and punishment is given. Observe, using the Greek definitions.
A primary particle; “off”, that is, away (from something near), in various senses (of place, time, or relation; literally or figuratively): - (X here-) after, ago, at, because of, before, by (the space of), for (-th), from, in, (out) of, off, (up-) on (-ce), since, with. In composition (as a prefix) it usually denotes separation, departure, cessation, completion, reversal, etc.
This is describing something that once was whole and now is separated.
Here is an illustration using the definition:
A primary particle; “off”, (CAST OFF, EXILED, PUT AWAY IN PUNISHMENT) that is, away (from something near) (WHEN WE OBEY, YAHWEH IS NEAR), in various senses (of place, time, or relation; literally or figuratively)(OUR RELATION WITH YAHWEH) :
Yahweh is going to punish Israel for disobedience.
Solomon fornicated with non-Israelite women, Yahweh split Israel into the 2 houses.
A prolonged form of a primary verb, which is used only as an alternate in certain tenses; to take (in very many applications, literally and figuratively [probably objective or active, to get hold of; whereas G1209 is rather subjective or passive, to have offered to one; while G138 is more violent, to seize or remove]) (Yahweh removed, or divorced us) : - accept, + be amazed, assay, attain, bring, X when I call, catch, come on (X unto), + forget (we forgot Him, so He will forget us. Psm 9:17, 50:22, Jer 23:39, Hos 4:6), have, hold, obtain, receive (X after), take (away, up).
Apolambano in a nutshell means recovering what was lost. In obedience, we are returned to our rightful place. Rejoined to our inheritance, by Yahweh's promise to Abraham, in the Kingdom. The other races do not apply because this is all about the seed (race) of Abraham.
Reward in Greek:
requital (properly the act): - reward.
Requital means return, compensation, reciprocal action.
to requite (good or evil): - recompense, render, repay.
Recompense means, to make return of anything given.
This would be our inheritance. Our free gift of favor (grace) that was given to Abraham and his seed. God does not go back on His promises.
Receive here in verse 25 is a different Greek word, komizo (G2865) which means, receive by implication. That being punishment as a result of doing wrong.
The “churches” teach that 'respect of persons' is talking about God not caring about race.
Yahweh demands we be separate from them. What God does not care about is a persons status in society (world). You are no different if you are rich or poor. Hold high office or no office. James defines this in James chapter 2. See also Lev 19:15, Deut 1:17, Job 34:19, Is 11:3-4.
